Kayaking for Freedom

Watched this year’s San Diego Big Bay Boom fireworks show from kayaks off Coronado Island.  Easily the best seats in the house, even if they were slightly damp.

Beating the Heat

The #bobbleheads await the #strawberry #sorbet with eager anticipation. With 90 degree temps and 80 percent humidity it was the only thing I could bring myself to “cook.”

Craving something cold, so this is today’s effort to beat the heat.

Time to burn

Trying to figure out what to do with tomorrow’s leap second.  So many options, so little time.

Great anniversary gift

Seven years and eight days after California allowed Randy and I to marry, that legal status now protects us in all fifty states.  Thanks to everyone who made this reality possible.

Sometimes being in a state that’s ahead of the curve (like California) lets us overlook the fact that there were millions of Americans who didn’t have that right recognized until today.  It’s been too easy to just fly over the states that refuse to treat us with dignity, and where their own people were denied the protections and benefits we had.   Not that I really want to go to those states that often, but it’ll be nice to have one less reason to avoid them.

From yesterday

The wonderful @gr8tchrsd grabbed this shot of me on the #gopro while we were chasing garibaldi at #lajollacove this morning. Goggles by @aquasphere_swim, suit by #monsterpolo and fins by @dafinhi.

The plug-in that handled these automatically seems to have run amok.  Exploring some options now, including manual cross posts, at least until I get back to a point of actually writing words here.

Someone had to come out and supervise the gardening. Maybe he’s been disappointed with the herbs in his share of the leftovers lately. #onofre #newsummerhairdo
